Whether you’re weaving through Borough Market’s labyrinth of stalls or ascending The Shard to discover fine-dining at high-altitude, it’s clear that food culture is at the heart of London Bridge. The area is teeming with dynamic independent start-ups, Michelin-starred restaurants and national favourites… With exciting cultural development catalysed by the revamp of the station, the culinary scene continues to grow, cementing the area’s status as one of the capitals top dining destinations. With this in mind, it is only fitting that the fifth London Bridge Open Kitchen food festival was our biggest to date. The annual summer feast brings an array of incredible local restaurants and bars out onto the street, giving you a peek into the kitchens and cabinets of world-class chefs (including Leandro Carreira, our foreword author) and mixologists.
